Joseph Blatter wants the Fifa watch collection back
The former president of FIFA, Joseph S. Blatter, again invited the World Football Association to publish about 60 valuable watches that he believes deserve his credit. "I am an honest man. I want my watches back and I am waiting for a positive response. Otherwise, the matter goes to court," the 83-year-old Swiss said in a BBC interview.
Blatter had already announced in May that he wanted to sue his successor Gianni Infantino. He worries about his integrity and the return of personal items. "It's a matter of respect," he repeated to the BBC.

Blatter still claims to have received only the cheapest chronographs. He emphasized that he just wanted to recover the watches that belong to him as a private person. The watches he received as head of the FIFA could remain in the possession of the association.
Blatter had led the FIFA from 1998 to 2016. In the end, he stumbled among the other, with a payment of two million francs (1.75 million euros) to his former advisor and then to the general director of UEFA Michel Platini.
